Wedding photography plays a crucial role when a couple gets hitched. There is no hiding about the fact that their wedding days are always stressful. There are so many things on the plate for a wedding that can easily get out of hand. 

So that you don’t fall in the trap of hassle, there are certain mistakes which you must not make for your wedding photography.

15 mistakes you should never make on your wedding photography

Attire fitting for the best wedding photography

Never keep this for the last. You need to get the last alteration done at least 15 days before the wedding.

Another tip for getting the fit done is never start any new diet 1 month before the wedding photography. You should complete reaching your body goal 2 months prior to your wedding.

The last thing doesn’t shop a year before. Your choice will change and you will certainly look for something new to wear. The safest bait id to shop 3 months before wedding photography as it will give you the latest trend and the perfect fit as well!

Getting matching accessories for wedding photography

You don’t want to miss this. Getting proper accessories is very important to make sure that your attire looks complete.

The ‘churni’, jewelry and purse should all be in sync with your dress. This means you should buy all of these only when you are done shopping for your saree or lehenga. Make sure you get it all on time and give a bridal makeup trial wearing all of it before the wedding.

Wearing uncomfortable shoes leads to messed up wedding photography

Never wear new shoes on your wedding that can give a shoe bite. You have to stay in it for a long time and there is no point in letting your feet be at the pain. Rather, wear a low hill sandal that is comfortable.

Take it from me, tight shoes will literally draw your attention to your feet leaving you in immense pain. So choose your shoe wisely.

Wrong bridal makeup = Ruined wedding photography

The wedding does call for heavy make-up, but honestly, it doesn’t suit all. There brides who look beautiful in minimal bridal makeup and should stick to it.

Also, choose colors that will complement your skin tone and attire as well. If you are wearing a very heavily designed saree/ wedding dress, keeping the makeup will let your attire get the deserving focus (after all you have spent a lot of money on it).

Hitting the salon late is a wrong decision in case of wedding photography

Wedding photography

Never, I repeat NEVER hit the salon a day before your wedding. Why? You never know how your skin will react to the pre-bridal skincare treatment.

Complete everything 3 days before your wedding day. Your facial treatment and other skin therapy take around 3 days to give the natural glow.

Not hiring a photographer early = Ruining your wedding photography 

wedding photography

You MUST hire your wedding photographer right from the time you decide the date. This will help you a lot. He/ she will be able to connect with you and do your pre-wedding shoot. Your photographer can also give ideas as well as give you examples about how different photographs you can click.

Wrong decision on the décor and theme

It’s your wedding and you should decide on the wedding venue theme and décor. It should complement the couple and their love together. The theme should be something that will be close to your heart and reflects a major part of your relationship.

Colour Coordinate for best wedding photography

Colour scheming is another paramount factor to keep in mind. The entire color should match the mood and reflect the love between the couple.

Nowadays, you can let go of the stereotypical red and golden color and embrace the peppy colors like purple, pink, blue, yellow, orange, magenta, etc.

All these hues give a very warm and welcoming feeling. Also, if your style is not mainstream, this should be your choice in color!

Lighting plays a crucial role in wedding photography

How can you have a great wedding without beautiful lighting? It’s just not possible! There are so many new and different patterns that you can add in the styling pattern and give way to the beautiful ambiance of your wedding.

Need help or suggestion? Take some advice from Google or from your photographer who will give you a proper insight into this beautifully.

Not getting enough sitting arrangements implies messy wedding photography

Let’s be real. Weddings are long and more than people seating, you can find a floating crowd. You certainly don’t want that! Why? They will not get a chance to sit and watch the wedding photography with love and serenity.

Also, there should be enough place to sit and eat properly at your wedding venue!

Letting relatives in your way disrupts your wedding photography

Often your guests’ list might consist of relatives who think to have better photography skills than professional wedding photography. Well, it would be very rude to ask these kinda relatives that they are in no way doing a favor, rather they are coming in the way and spoiling the creative approach of the wedding photographer.

Don’t lose the fun element

Wedding photography

Don’t forget that you shouldn’t pause and stare at the camera every time. Be natural, and continue what you’re doing. Candid shots look great. You will have portraits clicked where you pose especially for the camera; so you don’t need to make every frame a portrait.

Going for the same family and guest photos

Don’t make the pictures boring. With the couple in the middle and others just surrounding them, this is going to be a really boring affair.

Rather, try new and different poses that will bring life in the pictures. And lastly, ask the photographer to suggest which pose is going to look and suit the best.

You can be a little crazy with friends and cousins in the photo, Get the blessing shot from parents, the I’m still mom-dad’s girl pose and more…

Unless you experiment, the shoot will remain boring!

Not scheduling things from beforehand indicates confused wedding photography

‘I’ll do it later’ If you say this on your wedding day, it is the biggest mistake you will make. Even before you realize, time will fly and most of the work won’t be done. Plan everything with time and deadline.

If you stick to the plan only then you will see that there is no sudden and extra burden coming on your shoulder. Ask your best friends and favorite cousins (That’s true, there will always be some friends and cousins closer with the bride) to check and double-check everything.

Focusing too much on other things is not what you want for your wedding photography

wedding photography

Now, on this entire list, you will see it is about the things you are to do and how. But, in this hustle don’t forget to take out time for yourself. After all, it’s your wedding photography and how can you not take out enough time for yourself? You need to make sure you are having your personal space to relax and focus on your D-day.

Your main focus should be on you and your partner. Rest, things will fall in place!

Now that you know all about it, you are prepared to get married minus the stress!
